Default For Beta Testing: Chrome Extension Highlights New Comments in Disqus

One of the most annoying "features" of Disqus is that it doesn't indicate which comments are old and which are new. So I wrote a browser extension for Google Chrome that highlights all comments made since your last visit (with the extension installed). It works for my on bh.tv and The Atlantic, but I need beta testers. Tell me about any bugs, and if there are simple features I could add. But keep in mind that my time and programming skills are limited. Here's hoping that it works and that it makes things a bit more bearable.

Click the download link below, then on the resulting page click the download button and open the file.

Update: Okay. Second try.

Download the Extension | Source Code

Neat. I'll try it out.

Hmm.

Well, that's a doozy of a fail.

I've updated the links. But I think that you may have to make the download "Show in Folder" and then drag the file onto the Chrome shortcut on the taskbar. It really should just open automatically, but it is possible that Chrome only does that once something is in the app store.
